Need opinions on the color of my Falcon

Post by 63Falconconvert on June 6th 2011, 12:17 pm

Ok I'm on the fence again on what color to paint the 63. Bright white or red. The interior is red. If I go with white then I will be adding white scallops, if red then it will be all red with no scallops.
Please give me your opinions....

Thanks,
Bob

For me it depends on how close you can match the interior color. Reds that clash with each other are not pretty. Done right they look super custom. I'd lean white, otherwise, white convertibles with red interiors are hot.

Thats my dilema, the reds won't match. The interior is more of a blood red.

I'd go with the white then. Red is such a finicky color to match.

Can't go wrong with white. You don't see a lot of cars color matched inside and out that look good.

I say go with the white. I'm going to go white on my Falcon since that was the original color and I want it as original as I can get it. My factory color is Wimbeldon white. I' think I will need to do a custom mix to get the color close to that tone. If I use Rusto I was thinking of mixing white and Almond to get more of an off white. If I use the Interlux I'm not sure what I'll do. I know they have several shades of white to choose from so I may not need to make a custom blend.
